John Renbourn's unique stylistic fusion of British folk music with elements of country blues, modern jazz, ragtime, classical and pre-Renaissance music has led to his becoming one of the foremost fingerstyle guitarists performing today. John explores all the facets of his music in this 75 minute solo concert, recorded 1990 in Toronto, Canada.
He plays a classic rock instrumental by Booker T. & The MGS and follows this with a gospel tuned learned from a recording by the great Bahamian guitarist, Joseph Spence. Traditional Irish melodies are played as easily as a jazz composition from the South African pianist, Dollar Brand. John Renbourn is a "complete guitarist" and a highly evolved musician. This video presents a rare night which combined great guitar playing, John's unique humor and a captivated full-house.
